I suspect nobody in NetBSD except for jrmarino uses synth, and few if any use pkg imported from FreeBSD.
Anyway, I would like to see how synth works on its home turf, FreeBSD, before trying on NetBSD.
First attempt regarding synth was to build synth (and dependencies) from source in FreeBSD-current amd64.
I went to bed, and when I woke up to a bathroom call, saw on the screen something different. After some thought, I recognized it as being from System Rescue CD 5.0.0, which I had installed to a USB stick.
I concluded that FreeBSD had crashed and rebooted, a system crash rather than FreeBSD ports as such. Some packages installed, but not gcc6-aux and therefore not synth.
